Sleep Medicine

Specialists at Dell Children’s can detect conditions that may be keeping your child from having a healthy, good sleep. Our experienced physicians use advanced monitoring equipment within a pediatric-focused sleep lab to record data and pinpoint sleep disorders. Equipped with this information, a plan for treatment and therapy can then be developed.
